Business Week has an article about the Cuban embargo that contains the following line:
“Castro has been able to spin the embargo as evidence of “cruel” U.S. policies that use human suffering as a means of political pressure.”
Spin it? Nice work with the biased reporting there Business Week.
There’s no spin involved. The UN has voted with an overwhelming majority that the US should end the embargo for 17 years straight. Why? Because it’s inhumane, immoral and cruel.
But Business Week, another tool of the ruling elite in the US, neglected to mention that fact in its article. It chose to suggest that Castro “spins” the embargo to try to win sympathy.
Just one more example of how the US media can’t be trusted to report impartially on subjects that effect US corporate interests.
